Promising Show
16 April 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I was looking for some Light-weighted show and I thought of giving this show a try and I must say, I am not disappointed.

This guy Richard is a computer programmer living in an incubator with other programmers and working for a company Hooli. He makes an app pied-piper using an algorithm which compresses data.Realizing the potential of this algorithm,his boss Gavin Belson offers him a great deal of 10 million dollars and on the other hand he receives a deal of 200,000 dollars for 5 percent of his company from Peter Gregory if he starts one.

Now he has to go for the best deal-either to sell his idea or to start his own company.This show will bring more twists. Looking forward to more of it.
